The skiers won't like people making footprints across their trails in the winter anyway, whether or not the baskets are in the way. Pulling it for winter will eliminate that possibility of conflict.

I recognize the winter traffic would be an issue. The players who don't ski don't get it, thinking the basket and tee are out of the way, who cares? But lots of players trampling across groomed ski trails is a safety risk and a maintenance headache. Disc golf would strictly be an off-winter season activity.

I guess what I really mean about low density is the fact that between metro areas, the rural is very low density, and the distances are 1 to 2 hrs. So, it's like trying to sell a course to the entire UP for everyone's use, but really catering to the local metro residents and businesses to get things done and be the primary users.

99.99% of the winter disc golf is just me. I promise to bring a shovel/rake and fill my divots.
